Eastern Grey Kangaroo

(fairly sure that's the species)

Spotted at the Bellthorpe Research Station. He seemed fairly tame, in that unlike the interesting looking wallabies, he stood around and let us photograph him.

    It's a slender one, but he (or she) is an Eastern Grey. Nice work, I see you've been enjoying the 1D. ;)

    Cool. A fine specimen. Great pose.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/49276292@N02] I think, from the dangly bits that it is indeed a male. ;-)
    'twas the first real wildlife/birding outing with the 1D and it performed admirably.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/craiglyons] Just a young one I think, but definitely healthy looking.

    Nice! Can you imagine the numbers that are starting to build up out west after all the rain? The mind boggles...

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/teejaybee] Not just out west, apparently they're back to near plague proportions at Wacol again.

    Lovely sharp shot and some super fine DOF, New toy I see looks like its delivering some very nice results in your capable hands.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/accesser] Yes Jason, very handy for wildlife/birds/action. The AF performance is so much better than the 5DII that it's like day and night. However, the 5DII still holds supreme for landscapes and portraits.

    He looks inquisitive.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/klausselke] Thanks!
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/unrelatedpatterns] They quite often are. The smaller wallabies tend to take off into the bush pretty quickly, but the larger roos are less flighty.
